Health Sciences recognizes International Day for Persons with Disabilities

This International Day for Persons with Disabilities (December 3rd), we recognize disabled University of Alberta researchers, teachers, and learners in the College of Health Sciences whose work is making a meaningful impact in their community and beyond. We also acknowledge the road ahead to become a more disability-inclusive university.

If you are in need of accessibility related support or information, the university offers resources including the Academic Success Centre which helps coordinate students’ disability-related accommodation needs for participation in university programs.
